Estate Sale-ing or as I Call It - Junkin’

So last weekend, I got out of the house & headed to some local estate sales.  Normally, there are not that many around the greater Baton Rouge area, but there were two on one weekend.  YIPPEEE!  And hubby said to go (I was really in a lot of pain), I would probably feel better.  So, Sunday (50% off day!) afternoon, after dropping my son off at his girlfriend’s house to work on a Civics project, I headed off to BR.

This post is concerning my First Stop, a sale by a group I had never heard of.  Looky what I found!

Yes, these are all destined for Etsy!  I did get my brother his Christmas there (shhh – don’t tell) so I won’t post that.  He checks out my blog on occasion.

I had a great time.  Then I went to another sale, one that I had attended that Friday, but that was just down the road & it WAS 50% off day.  Wait until you see what I found!  Oh, I love it!  I’ll also have to take pictures of what I decided to keep, which wasn’t much since my house is beginning to look like a storeroom, but there were a couple of things I bought for ME. 

Have a great weekend and until later…………….
